Stefonovich Family, Fig. 6 (Tito) limited edition Gocco screenprint
New in my etsy shop!! (see my profile for details)
The Stefonovich Family grew out of my boredom with the traditional roles of Barbie and her compatriots. It all began in 1980 when my Malibu Skipper doll seamlessly made the transition from wholesome teen beachbum to a crazy lady with a penchant for late night yodeling/opera singing sessions. Her name was Stefonovich. She began terrorizing the other Barbies, a one girl barrage of spastic annoyance. Stefonovich was alone in her efforts to tempt the other Barbies away from their bland domestication until I met my childhood best friend, who coincidentally was also named Heather. She immediately embraced my demented ideas and it was the power of our friendship as two misfit girls that was the fertile soil from which the Stefonovich Family grew. There are sixteen members that span 3 generations ranging from Great Auntie Arthritis down to the youngest; the diminutive Windex. They each had their own distinctive personalty, voice and fashion sense. I’ve decided that It's due time that they become immortalized and emerge for the world to see in this series of portraits that I have created. I had so much fun making these, I hope you enjoy them too. It is with great pleasure that I present: Tito.
Stefonovich Family, Fig. 6 (Tito) is a 6 X 8.5" Gocco print on 8.5 X 11" recycled, acid free, archival quality, heavy chipboard. It is my original artwork Gocco printed in 3 layers; turquoise, indigo and metallic silver ink. It is a limited edition of 50 prints and is signed and numbered. It would look great framed or hung by a clip, alone or paired with other members of the family.
